Money Morning's Debt-Crisis Survival Guide

In The Wall Street Journal today (Tuesday), the lead story begins with the statement: "Financial markets on Monday began taking seriously the prospect of a downgrade of the U.S.'s triple-A credit rating, which it has held for nearly a century."

Unfortunately, that's a true statement: Many investors are just now starting to take seriously the possibility of a downgrade on the federal government's credit rating.

But I'd be willing to wager that this group of newly panicking investors includes very few Money Morning readers. After all, we've been warning you about this fallout for quite some time.

Not only that, we've been detailing moves investors can make to defend themselves – and in some cases, even profit.

As a service to all of you, Money Morning staff members went back through our most recent coverage, and came up with a short list of news stories, analyses and investment reports that we believe will best help you navigate this crisis. Let's call it a "Debt-Crisis Survival Guide."
